Despite the fact an expert said it was impossible for Gareth Williams to have got into the bag and locked himself in all by himself, Richie still seems to think he could have done. As for his salary he would've been on quite a bit more than the starting salary given that he'd been working for MI6 for a few years - and ever heard of credit cards, Rich?
This just annoys me because I knew Gareth when he was a child (we weren't close friends as he was a few years younger than me and also he was very quiet and not particularly sociable) and knew his family a little and to keep dragging this out and speculating about his proclivities helps no one. People in my home town are appalled at the way some section of the press have treated this story. This comment sums it up for me:
This article is insensitive, cruel and entirely speculative. You have no idea how much he was earning - he was a PhD qualified cryptographer, not a computer analyst. You have no idea if his parents knew about his behaviour, they were more likely to be embarrassed that the details will attract journalists like you to write titillating stories. Your attempt to smear him and suggest that the money came from illicit sources and comment that 'minor operative could have been discretely dumped into the Thames' are disgusting. Finally, you do not show any interest in getting to the truth how a smart and decent man died, you would rather make up your own story and present it as truth. You should be ashamed of yourself.
